I just returned from visiting my family in Connecticut and I quickly remembered that one thing I don’t miss about my home state are the mosquitoes in the summertime. Don’t misunderstand me: they’re nowhere near as bad as other states like Alaska (the worst), Florida, Minnesota or even parts of Hawaii, but they still suck, pun intended.
We were recently at my cousin’s house in Connecticut and my little niece was crying from being bitten by a mosquito. She was begging her mom to use The Bug Bite Thing. I asked what the heck The Bug Bite Thing is and my cousin showed me. It’s a little plastic device about five inches long and looks like a wine opener. She raved about it because it’s all-natural and said it was one of the number one products featured on Shark Tank and costs just $9.95 on their website (free shipping) or on Amazon.
After she sucked the poison out of the little one’s leg, I asked her to hit my ankle up since a muzzy had just hit me up. Sure enough, my ankle felt better though I’m not sure if it was just psychosomatic or if it really works.
I’m going with the latter since the reviews are mostly great. Though one thing I learned is not to use it on your face or neck as some people claim it leaves hickey-like marks, which no one, and I mean no one, needs.
It’s especially great for kids and grandkids because they can be more bothered by bug bites and in bad cases, can even disrupt their sleep. It’s the perfect little thing to add to your summer travel bag.
The Bug Bite Thing is a suction tool so it’s chemical free. They advertise that it removes insect venom, saliva, and other irritants left under the skin from bugs. One carpenter left a popular comment saying it works for some splinters too, which is a huge bonus.
The box says it works on mosquitoes, bees, wasps, biting flies, no-see-ums, chiggers, sea lice & more. It’s supposedly clinically proven, kid friendly and 100% guarantee. For $10, you don’t have much to lose, except maybe trying to explain to your wife that it gave you a hickey on your neck.
